About Rufus Wainwright

Rufus Wainwright was born in 1973 in New York. He was brought up in Canada. In his early childhood days, he started playing piano. When he was just a teen, he composed "I’m Runnin’" which gained him appreciation and complement. He tried to get a music degree and learn music composition. But he did not wish to continue his education due to his music career. In 1988,, he released his first debut pop album Rufus Wainwright in Canada.

Wainwright was brought up by his mother because his parents got divorced when Wainwright was just 4. After his school life, he wanted to get music education. So, with the encouragement from his father he attended McGill University to learn the details of music composition. He did not enjoy the environment in the university and dropped out soon. He decided to peruse a music career which hi mother never discouraged.

Wainwright started to demonstrate at the Montreal nightspots. He worked hard and composed a musical demo. He tried to highlight his demo to the Lenny Waronker who had just founded the music creation wing of DreamWorks Studios. He could easily impress people around him with his amazing vocal style. So he received an offer from a record company. Around in 1996, Wainwright came up with a piano-dominated work backed by compound string arrangements.

His works were accepted by many people and started receiving critical success in Canada and other places. Wainwright was selected for a Juno for Best Alternative Album. It was amazing for Wainwright to see his name published on the Rolling Stone Magazine. His music started to cross borders and reach overseas countries. He released a new album in 2001, Poses. In this album he loved to do something with the musical styles which in fact expanded the previous releases. Wainwright is always piano focused pop artist but he was also interested in some other musical interments as well. .

Cole Porter and George and Ira Gershwin were the figured admired by Wainwright for being his influencing artists.
